To kill or not to kill
“Whoever slays a soul, unless it be for a manslaughter or for mischief in the land, it is as though he slew all men; and whoever keeps it alive, it is as though he kept alive all men.” (Surah al-Mā’ida 5:32)All the believers are sons of Adam (a.s.) and brothers to one another. One who kills another person perpetrates a great evil and instigates a feeling of malice, revenge and hatred among people.
That was a bold move to kill an ambassador and even a stupider move doing it live on air. Maybe the perpetrator was trying to make a point, hence the scream the word Aleppo and revenge. It’s not right to kill a man in the name of religion or just to make a point. What’s happening in Aleppo was no doubt, horrible and some might say it’s almost the definition of hell on earth.
But to take someone’s life is not an individual’s right. Only a crazy and full with entitlement person would ever think that he has the right to kill someone. But that was just my point of view and personal’s opinion.
There’s a psychological study where a person who kill someone and is not a serial killer had suffered a trauma during childhood or are driven by devastating occurrences. He was said had scream Aleppo and revenge. In other word the shooter was profoundly damaged.
Regardless of the psychological state that he is in, he shouldn’t have scream Allah the mighty god as if he was doing it for Islam. Crazy people need to stop tying whatever violence act that they are doing to the religion that they think they are following.
